It is a great gun. Reliable,accurate, a pleasure to shoot, 18+1, usually under 500 bucks, easy to clean, and you can get it with stainless slide or blued. My everyday carry is a blued ruger sr40c. I have owned the sr9c as well. I have fired both full size versions. They all break down the same as well which is convenient.

I can't speak for the 9 but I own the full size 40 and love it.

I bought the SR9 in stainless in 2010 then I bought the SR9c (also in ss) a year later because I loved the SR9 so much. Both guns are great guns. The SR9c is an excellent ccw.

I have the SR9 and love it also. How do you carry your SR9C? I've never carried, Illinois resident, but isn't a little big? I would think pocket carry would definitely be out.

I love my SR9, i have over 1000 rnds thru it, it just keeps getting better. Never even one FTF/FTE (Federal Eagle/Hydra Shok) Ergonomics are second to none, The first time i picked it up at the shop, i had to have one. The adjustable back strap is nice. It has a mag safety, some people like that feature, some dont...

Great choice. I have an SR9C.

It's always preferable to have the person handle, shoot, and choose a gun. But if I was going to give one blind to somebody, the SR9 would make a lot of sense. It's kind of like the Chevy Malibu of handguns. There's nothing really fancy about it, but it's just a good, solid tool.
